      In the 19th century the industry declined because import taxes on foreign competitors, mainly from France, were greatly reduced. By the middle of the 20th century, only a few Worcester gloving companies survived since gloves became less fashionable and free trade allowed in cheaper imports from the Far tuent country: England. Articles include tapestries, flags, embroidery, garments (including knit gloves of the 15th century, if memory serves, and shoes with cork soles) a full Landesknecht uniform - the color pictures are glorious - 16th century shirts, and all kinds of neat stuff. This is a fun book, especially if you are interested in clothing construction.
